Shop Local: My Top 15 Favorite Local Etsy Shops


As many of you dear readers already know, I LOVE Etsy! I have found so many wonderful crafters and artists since starting this blog and I love perusing their Etsy shops and making my wish lists.

You all probably also know by now that BVT Moms is passionate about supporting local businesses. We are so blessed in VT to have so many wonderful places to choose from! I love going shopping, but that is not always easy and it is definitely not stress free with a little toddler in tow (and soon to be newborn added to the mix). That’s why I love being able to do some of my shopping online, and I love that I can support local crafters and artists through shopping on Etsy.

With Christmas around the corner, I thought it might be helpful to compile a list of my top 15 favorite localEtsylocal Etsy shops for all of your holiday shopping needs. So in no particular order, here are my favs.
